Christmas Tags and Giveaway

Hello All!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
It is now mid December and we are in full holiday spirit!
I have been stuck in bed with a flu, and I am dreaming up all kinds of things to make!
Soon, I will be up again and at it.

Last week I was able to begin some Christmas fun in my art room,
I started with jewelry and ended up with some tags.
Here are three different styles for some of my family. 


Mary in silver and cream.


I really do enjoy the stitching!
I am not sure if my sewing machine agrees though! Lol! 
Paper and layers of all kinds of things! 


I have a passion for glitter,
but try (I did say try) not to go overboard...


Here is a festive holiday tag, with a familiar angel image.
I like to use bits of old things...
Like the lovely blue bit of paper here is from a hundred year old paper book.


Mixing old with new...


A softer, more romantic angel tag...


I used a tissue paper transfer of a really old French receipt for the background...
and bits of an old vintage table cloth....


And I tucked in a little piece of that old pale blue paper here too.
I love the mix of fine glitter and round dots of glitter.

It really does help me get into the holiday mood to work on these for loved ones.
My shopping is just about done, only a couple last minute items,
most of ours gifts are home made.

(ooops! See the nail in the wall??? I forgot I moved a picture to be fixed!)

Here is the new organizer I just finished last week.
It was so much fun!
I really recommend it as a gift for an artsy friend.
My husband gave it to me last year,
(bought at Archiver's)
and I just couldn't let this Christmas come and go without it being created.
(I will share close up pics in next post)

You can see the corner of my newly covered couch, and I promise I am really going to share a full image!
I had a crazy idea to repaint my room and I was waiting to show it off with the new color...
we will see :  )

Terri, you are so talented. I almost had tears in my eyes when I was looking at those beautiful tags you made. You do have the magic touch! Hope you get over your flu soon. I'm having trouble getting over mine. But, it's slowly going away. I guess it has to take the time that it has to take! That's what I keep telling myself. Take care!

Paula said...

Hello dear Terri, I am so sorry to hear you have the flu! I hope you will feel better soon and be well in time for Christmas! I love the gorgeous Christmas tags you made, especially the Let it Snow, little girl angel. You are very creative and talented! Your dear ones will love these. The organizer you altered is beautiful. I love the entire vignette as well as your white slipcover! Your giveaway is fabulous and so generous! Thank you for visiting me and for your very kind words. I was sorry to hear about your brother! That is so sad! I am 43, and did not have any cardiac care until I went to a cardiologist on my own when I was 17. I had my first open heart surgery when I was 22 and my second one, last year when I was 42. I am so blessed to be here and thank the Lord for keeping me going all of these years! I am thankful for the Mayo Clinic and the incredible team that cares for me too.

How wonderful you had vintage poodles in your home when you were a little girl, and a poodle too! I love her name. I had one too, her name was FiFi, then I had two more poodles, Pepe and Pixie and now I have my sweet poodle Pearl. I always have to have a poodle, they are so sweet and pretty! :D I know you could crochet a rose! Merry Christmas! Hugs, Paula xoxo

BECKY said...

And now to say of course I would love to win that domino book or the bracelet, or whichever, but I am already enrolled in your class, so pass on that one for moi. I cannot tell you how inspiring you are to me. I love the angel tags. So pretty, and the one hundred year old robin's egg bleu piece of paper is exquisite! Your little organized cupboard is beautiful! Beauty is what it's all about!
Hugs and more hugs, Christine.

Terri, I am always amazed at your attention to detail and the lovely themes you pick for your creations. You are a calming influence in my world. Thank you, once again, for offering incredible giveaways. A domino book made by you would be pure heaven, or tea in a wintery rose cup....but too late for me on the domino book video as I am signed up and enjoying every minute of having you as a teacher. Great job as usual.

Fondly, Verna
